Roller shades have no cording that runs through the blind, nor do they provide open slots or gaps for children or animals to become tangled in. Roller shades can be made as a motorized or cordless - meaning there is a zero chance of strangulation because a cord became tangled around a neck. Even the beaded cord loop option that we offer exceeds safety guidelines. That is because our metal select locking chain guide is one of the best on the market. Stylish and sturdy - when properly installed.
Additional Child-Safe Window Shade Recommendations:
- Use cordless or motorized shades in playrooms and children's bedrooms.
- Keep cribs away from windows with corded window treatments.
- Shorten cords to be out of reach of young children.
- Inquire with a local window treatment dealer about child safe chains or cord guides, if you have free-hanging loops on existing window treatments.
